Cybersecurity, Privacy, and Data Protection
In today’s day and age, threats to intellectual property assets are a major area of concern for businesses of all sizes, and, as the world becomes more connected, the vulnerability of those assets is growing. While companies now realize the importance of being proactive in protecting their IP, few know what steps need to be taken to address the growing risks. That’s where we come in. Attorneys in Rothwell Figg’s cybersecurity, privacy, and data protection practice advise clients on the broad range of issues that businesses face daily in order to guard valuable intellectual property, secure data, and comply with the laws and regulations regarding privacy. We work closely with clients to recognize, respond to, and minimize the serious risks associated with susceptible IP and data. In the unfortunate circumstance when a company does face a breach, we are well situated to assist during and in the aftermath of the incident, including taking immediate corrective measures, negotiating with the relevant regulatory authorities, defending against lawsuits arising from such breaches, and advising on improvements to the security and privacy programs for the future. RFEM attorneys also have extensive experience successfully representing clients in privacy-related investigations initiated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). A partner on the team, Steven Lieberman, has been a co-author of the District of Columbia section of the Media Law Resource Center’s annual 50-State Survey of Media Privacy and Related Law for more than 20 years.
